Green Your Spring Break: Eco-Friendly Beach Party

Spring break beer Spring break is a great time to relax and let loose, but that doesn't mean you have to leave all your green habits behind. This week's tips will help make your spring break more eco-friendly.

Tip # 4: Go for a Greener Beach Party

Spring break's hedonistic atmosphere can be toxic for your liver but it needn't wreak planetary havoc. Avoid the plastic cups and drink what's on tap -- keg beer has a 68 percent lighter carbon footprint than the bottled stuff. Opt for organic beer, wine, or liquor, and choose a local brand.

If the sun's out, pack organic sunscreen and beach towels. If you absolutely can't be seen in last year's swimsuit, make sure your new one is made with recycled or natural materials.

Tell us: Any organic libations you'd like to recommend?
